Words escape me.

Rather have Richard Dean Anderson spends his time on the Stargate movies instead of on this dreck.

So this will be right up there with the other SNL achievements in cinematic history like "It's Pat" and "Superstar"?

Maybe the film crew will all have personal issues and the movie will blow up.

I'm with you AA.

So they can't do a MacGyver movie, but they can do one of his idiotic SNL spoof? Creative bankruptcy, thy name is Hollywood.

The MacGruber skits aren't even remotely funny. Why do anything but kill the whole thing??

I ... actually think this sounds kind of funny. Better than "Pat" or "Superstar" anyway.

If you think of it as a MacGuyver parody movie, it seems like there's some potential there.

Because that would be an excellent premise. Someone is TRYING to make the movie, but everyone, including Anderson, is trying to shut them down.

Don't forget the "Roxbury Brothers" or whatever the hell that was. I say they go ahead and make "MacGruber" it'll allow a film crew to earn a paycheck and it'll go in the long list of SNL related movies that I will never watch.

Re: SNL's MacGruber! to be made into movie

I think this movie has an excellent chance of being one of the worst "comedies" ever produced.

1)Take a completely unfunny, repetitive 30 second skit based on an unfunny idea
2) starring a terrible actor and
3) make a 90 minute movie out of it
4) ???
5) success

brilliant

Doesn't seem right to make a MacGyver parody movie before making a straight MacGyver movie.
